A federal judge's tentative ruling would allow six students from a Christian school to sue the University of California over its refusal to recognize religious-based courses in the admission process.
U.S. District Judge S. James Otero tentatively decided Tuesday that the students from Calvary Chapel Christian School in Murietta could pursue their claim that the UC system violated their free speech and discriminated against them.
At the same time, Otero expressed concern that no other schools had joined Calvary's suit.
No Catholic, "Islamic or Jewish (schools) are part of the litigation," Otero said during a hearing. "They seem to have students move through the (UC) system with no problem."
Otero did not indicate when he would issue a final ruling.
UC attorneys argue they have a right to set standards. They say the problem with the rejected courses was not based on ideology but that they didn't teach adequately.
The students' lawsuit claims the UC system violated their rights by rejecting as "too narrow" Calvary classes such as "Christianity's Influence on American History" while approving other schools' courses such as "Ethnic Experience in Literature," "Jewish History" and "Issues in African History."

On the campuses of our publicly funded universities, Leftist moveon.org professors have been happily hired to the exclusion of opposing viewpoints for several decades and been getting away with presenting narrow courses allowing only one point of view, designed to indoctrinate students into the religion of Leftist extremism. When it comes to courses that support traditional values, the Left hypocritically try to block equal time for any point of view but their own.
"A federal judge's tentative ruling would allow six students from a Christian school to sue the University of California over its refusal to recognize religious-based courses in the admission process."
Good.... plus these students are paying a handsome sum of tuition $$ most likely. They should not be censured by the leftist elitist educators.
Finished your sentance for you...
